The Record Auction To End All Auctions

Dear Diary,

How is it that I’m already creating another post about records?! Somehow we can go years without any records coming into the building and then a million show up in one day.

So here’s what I’ve been working on for the last few months. 2700 records!

Those are all alphabetized, numbers and individually photographed. Twice. Do you know how long that takes? DO YOU KNOW?!

I’m tired just thinking about it.

Currently the auction is timed and live at iCollector. Anyone in the world can actually bid on the records they want. It’ll be interesting to see what happens when the auction is finished. If anyone reading this wants to bid, here’s the web address you can do it at:

Otherwise just stay tuned and I’ll make a post next week to say how it went.

Love Michael.

Record Number Of Records

Dear Diary,

Today was the viewing for the estate auction we are having tomorrow outside Stony Plain. (Details can be found at http://www.wardsauctions.com). I have to say it went pretty smoothly. I anticipate a lot of people at the sale tomorrow which is always a good thing. It’s more fun when there is more energy in the crowd.

There’s over 1700 lots in the sale but half of those are (drum roll) Records!

All shapes and sizes. What? That isn’t enough for you? What about-

Or how about one of THESE-

I bet you didn’t expect THIS-

I actually took even more pictures but that seems like enough.

The people that viewed were great. I was there to make sure all the lotted piles stayed together but I really didn’t have to. Everyone took great care to make sure everything went back to where it came from and that nothing was damaged in any way. These people truly respect the medium.

I’ll post about the actual sale tomorrow after it’s happened. But you don’t need to read about it. BE THERE! And see it for yourself.

Love Michael
